Easy Bunny Cake

  • PrepTime: 45 Mins
  • CookTime: 40 Mins
  • TotalTime: 1 Hrs 25 Mins


  1. 1 (15.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  2. 1 cup water
  3. ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  4. 3 large eggs
  5. 1 (16 ounce) container vanilla frosting
  6. 3 ¾ cups flaked coconut
  7. 30 small jellybeans
  8. 4 sticks red licorice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the sides and bottoms of two 9-inch metal springform pans.
  2. Beat cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase to medium speed and beat for 2 minutes. Pour into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, 23 to 2 minutes.
  4. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove cakes from the springform pans and cool completely, about 20 more minutes.
  5. Place one cake on a serving tray, forming the bunny's head.
  6. Cut 2 convex-shaped ears from each side of the second cake, and place them on each side of the head to form ears. Place the remaining concave-shaped piece about 1/2 inch below the head for the bowtie.
  7. Frost the entire bunny cake with vanilla frosting; pat the cup coconut evenly over top and sides. Decorate the bunny face and bowtie with jellybeans and use licorice to make whiskers.
